Just OK - Not my kind of Beer. Has a very slight Wang to it - Subtle sweet Banana flavor.

#9 is an apricot fruit ale. And a great one at that! If you have never had a fruit or vegetable flavored beer give this a go. If you like it then you try other flavors. #9 also has decent mouth feel and body and is somewhat bready or as some would say: funky.. You gotta admire Magic Hat for saying this is their flagship beer since it is a bit adventurous, but it does work rather well.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear orange beer with a standard head. Frutal aromas are perceived and when is tasted that impression is more clear, cranberry, lychee and apricot flavors come into as well as the malt flavors, but with a bad mix with the hop flavors. To be fair is something uncommon but too strange to be paired easily with food.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear yellow, minimal head. Fruity aroma with a hint of spice. Texture is thin and watery. This will not set the standard for pale ales. Totally forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Caramel, Citrus, Fruitiness, Apricots
Appearance: Amber, clear to hazy, white head
Taste: Heavy sweet, medium bitter
Palate: light body, slick texture, average carbonation, long bitter/apricot finish
Overall: Tastes like what I expect a Pale Ale with Apricots to taste like. Nothing crazy, but it’s a solid fruit ale. Nice clear and a bit fruity. I can see why it’s a gateway beer into other styles. It’s a bit too sweet for me and I’m not a fan of apricots, but it’s really not a bad beer.

Tasty fruit beer. Easy to drink and overall enjoyable. Nothing that really stands out but would drink again if on the menu.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours gold, moderately fizzy as opposed to a lasting head. Aroma is apricot, spice and somewhat musty. Taste has a lot of apricot, but nothing in either the aroma or flavor has anything resembling the piney hoppiness of an IPA. This just isn’t very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Arômes de limonade, ananas et lichi. Légèrement sucré. Vraiment original. Doux et sucré. En bouche, limonade, un peu de citron, jus d’ananas. Un côté sucré qui fait penser à du blé malté. (Gout de banane). Amertume douce, courte et maltée. Texture légère, corps moyen. Saveurs originales. Pas une bombe mais à essayer.

Very average. Flavour is forgettable, but not unpleasant. Slightly fizzy, not much head.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light yellow in appearance, mild in flavor, sweet fruity peach and berries. . Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation--a little too much initially but mellows as it sits in the glass. Quick finish. Overall, a nice highly drinkable beer with good flavor profile. Not complex but good either on its own or paired with food
